Brush Fires Break Out on Eastern Long Island

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Volunteer firefighters from 30 departments were on the scene of a brush fire in a remote wooded area of eastern Long Island.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone says in a televised interview on News12 that no injuries were reported.

The Long Island Rail Road cancelled two trains between Ronkonkoma and Riverhead.

The fire is reported to be much smaller than the one that charred more than 1,000 acres in the same area last week.
